Now Im sitting with almost 15k bonds, and had hoped for some nice bond tanks we all know the big anticlimax presented with the "new" bond shop tanks. And I am not really interested in the X tanks (ok maybe the M60 but not really) cause I hardly ever play tier X.

 

But know did see the Kampfpanzer 50t for 20k bonds under the Ranked Battles "menu" in the bond shop - and that one is the only one in the bond shop that I am willing to spend my bonds for. The only really interesting tank for me.

Sure - need to harvest another 5k bonds but seems legit.

 

But what do I actually have to do to be able to buy it for those 20k bonds? Do I have to take part in Ranked Battles (have never done that before), and do I have to reach a certain level/grind/whatever - and so on?

From the news page:

https://worldoftanks.eu/en/content/guide/ranked_battles_guide/

You get access to Ranked Battles items after you reach the Second Division. These items can be purchased for bonds.

Ah, thx. So basically a looooot of matches have to be played to even be able to buy the tier IX tank - for a lot more than the bond shop tier X tanks?

 

Once again - I have never played Ranked, so I admit beeing a bit of a noob there. 

 

How much of Ranked playing to one expect to reach Second? Now i did reach lvl 15 in Fronlines in 20-30 matches this year - so at least can call myself an OKish or average player (but far from purple unicorn).

Sounds like lots of chores to even get the option to buy it....

Its like working a job but only having the option for a salary if you work extra hours for free.

Yeah kinda my thoughts aswell. Now earning the 20k bonds is a bit of work - and then grind a lot to even get the option to buy it... A huge price for "just" a tier IX tank... But once again - have nothing really that interesting to spend my 15k bonds on....

Some new tanks are being added to the bond shop I think it was Dezgamez that did a video about it.

Maybe they will add something of interest.

I'll give it a bash and see how far I get before I get bored. I have more than enough for it. But... time is something else these days.

Those new thanks they will add are rarely seen for a reason tbh. Those I already own are bad, those I don't have are said to be bad too.

Given equipment 2.0 changes and bond equipment getting better then improved bounty equipment it might be a good idea to just save up the bonds and equip your favorite tank(s) with bond equipment.

 

That is if changes go live like they are in sandbox, as if and when isn't really clear afaik.

I'm gonna give it a shot tomorrow and see how I feel about it really. I played Frontline enough it could've been considered a job, but that was atleast a lot more mindless since there was no penalty of losing chevrons or anything.

I do work nightshifts so I can sleep all morning and then waste 5-6 hours playing at the afternoon/evening before going to work. If I want to..  And no - dont have wife, girlfirend or kids disrupting my Wot playing   :teethhappy:

 

Did reach lvl 15 on Frontlines on day 4-5 most of the FL weeks. Without playing all day long like a lunatic. But then - I do love Frontlines. Aaaaand not sure about Ranked....

Yeah but I already wasted 10k bonds (before Tanks for Bonds) on equipment and do have the bounty equipment - so I want tanks for my bonds! :great:

My opinion about the bond shop, its half ar*ed crap.

Instead of slowly filling it with tanks that people may not even care about they should have taken the blueprint approach. 

Allowing you to buy premium/reward tank fragments for bonds till you either unlock them fully or buy the remaining costs with gold (reward tanks off course not unlockable with gold).

The difference would be that people could actively work towards unlocking a prem/reward tank of their choice rather then mindlessly farm bonds in hopes someday, something they want pops up.

Totally agree with you. And that grinding idea you are talking about is quite a good one actually.

 

Cause now i am doing what you are describing at last - just hoping that something interesting pops up.

As said - I hardly ever play tier X but do play mostly tier IX for the fun of it - so I would love a juicy IX tank that most people dont have (read: the Kpz50t). 

 

And what the bond shop has been offering is quite meh. Nothing interesting.  And the added tanks, Kreslavsky, IS-5, Chrysler K and so on.... Along with the Mutz and the rest.. Even more meh.

Most of those are sold now and then in prem shop - or in the Black Market. So why waste those precious and hard earned bonds on them? Not my cup of tea - really.

I get bonds from time to time without any attempt to get them

So far they have bought me a special rammer and special vents for my KV220

On both occasions I was so happy I almost cried

That extra 2.5% makes all the difference

Now i am curious to know how many player have a bond equipment equiped tier 5 pref mm premium heavy.

Probably less then 0.001% of the playerbase, so even rarer then unicums.

And with a 7 skill crew too

It isn't really sealclubbing as I am so bad that I need all the help I can get and anyway the forum experts know that the 220 is UP

My advice to you would be to use bonds to buy Kampfpanzer 50t

Maybe you guys can help me out as I have not been able to find any info on the subject: Will the Kpz 50t be available throughout the entire season (all three ranked battles 2020-2021) and is the cumulative discount saved? As someone who hasn't played ranked before, and lacks the 20k bonds to buy it right away, that would be a pleasant suprise.
